Super Fast Broadband

Super-fast Broadband Project

Update on faster broadband project for Gloucestershire:

Fastershire postcode checker is now available

Fastershire is a project to bring fibre broadband to around 90% of homes and businesses in Gloucestershire and Herefordshire by the end of 2016.

The Fastershire website contains information about the project’s aims and the Fastershire postcode checker is now live on the website. Find out if your location is ‘accepting orders’ (ieinfrastructure is there), ‘coming soon’ (infrastructure there within a year) or is a ‘future exchange’ / ‘under evaluation’.

Work has already started in Cinderford, Coleford, Lydbrook, Longhope and Drybrook and there was a recent announcement that work will begin in late summer to connect Lechlade, Fairford and South Cerney.

The GRCC website page sums up the story so far in moving towards better broadband for rural Gloucestershire.
